I have over 23 years with John Soules Foods where I started as the Southeast Regional Sales Representative exploring my passion for sales and meeting people.

My role has advanced through several levels of management, and most recently the National Sales Director where I manage an excellent multi-staff sales team that covers the U.S, Mexico and the Caribbean.

I currently reside in Georgia with my wife and son where I have spent my whole life and career. When I’m not busy with work, I enjoy boating, golfing & traveling with family and friends.
